Bearing capacity is the capacity of soil to support the loads applied to the ground. The bearing capacity of soil is the maximum average contact pressure between the foundation and the soil which should not produce shear failure in the soil. Our innovative testing methods enables you to assess this in applications that include temporary works platforms for mobile crane pads or piling rigs, building and temporary structure foundations, tank farms, pavements and others.

AX01 Plate Load Test (Plate Bearing Test)

  • Used to determine the allowable and ultimate bearing capacity
  • Measures the load-deflection relationship
  • Suitable for pavement, foundation and temporary works platform investigation.
  • Immediate repeatable results so that on-site decisions can be made straight away
  • Meets DIN 18134 (2012) standard

Light Weight Deflectometer (LWD)

  • Estimate allowable and ultimate bearing capacity
  • Unbound or partially bound layers
  • 30 – 400 kPA range
  • Achieved by measuring deflection and changing plate diameters, drop weights and drop height.

Dynamic CBR Extension

  • Measures California Bearing Ratio (CBR) directly in the field
  • Penetration test
  • Evaluate the mechanical strength of subgrades and base courses
  • Immediate repeatable results so that on-site decisions can be made straight away
